July 1….a day to reflect on what it means to be Canadian (cue National Anthem music in background).
I have to tell you about a very special event that happened to BOF and me in May. We met the PRIME MINISTER!!! at a sports event. Yes, I was a bit of a stalker and approached him for a photo, thinking “Isn’t this going to be the most amazing bit of Show & Tell that my daughter could bring in to show her teacher and class!!”
|PM Stephen Harper, BOF and Moi (Note the intentional inclusion of French)|
Let me tell you, when his baby blues met my browns, I felt a teeny thrill of a crush going on! (Do NOT think Monica Lewinsky, people!)
The PM’s official photographer actually took this photo and gave me a little official business card with a number. I was supposed to email his office my number and then they emailed me this official photo! Yay!
So when I got the photo, I was soooo excited and printed it off and gave it to BOF. Her reaction was less than enthused, “No Mom, I don’t want to take this to school. It’s not like he’s Justin Bieber or anything.”
What?!?!? A momentous photo like this and she doesn’t want to show it to all her friends???
I asked my friend Photoshop for help, and this is what we came up with….
|PM Justin Bieber, BOF and Moi.|
Now she can have Justin, and I can have Stephen!
I just hope the “Feds” don’t come after me for this 🙂
